It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Mel on July 29th, 2022 in his 75th year. Beloved husband of Alissa for 51 years. Loving father and father-in-law of Sari, Johanna (Warren) and Matt. Cherished grandfather of Ora, Isabel and Eddie. Mel was a devoted family man. A dedicated teacher for over 30 years, he touched the lives of many students. He will be greatly missed.

The family is grateful for the kindness and outstanding care provided by staff at Sunnybrook Hospital.
